Giggs says Angel di Maria will come good

Ryan Giggs has re-inforced his belief in Angel di Maria, insisting he will “come good” again.

Giggs insists Angel di Maria is not suffering from a crisis of confidence and believes it is only a matter of time before he shines again in a Manchester United shirt.

Di Maria became British football’s most expensive signing when he joined United from Real Madrid for £59.7m last August but after scoring three times in his first five appearances, the Argentinian’s form has dipped considerably.

The 27-year-old winger has netted only once in 19 games and has been substituted in United’s last three Premier League matches.

But assistant manager Giggs still believes in Di Maria’s quality, saying: “I think his confidence is fine. He’s a quality player and we’ll be looking for him to produce because it is big game after big game now.

“Players get used to different leagues, sometimes quickly and sometimes it takes a bit of time.

“He had a really good start to the season but with players who take risks and who can win games it’s always difficult to be consistent because they will try things that other players won’t do.

“They’re capable of doing that and that’s why they’re match-winners and the best players.”

Giggs added: “This is the time really when results are the top focus and then the performances will come and the confidence you get from that.”
